Atomic Absorption Spectrometer

Atomic Absorption Spectrometer A

Atomic Absorption Spectrometer B

SPECIFICATION

Model: AAnalyst 100

Manufacturer: Perkin Elmer

DESCRIPTION

Atomic spectroscopy is the technique for determining the elemental composition of an analyte by its electromagnetic or mass spectrum. Atomic Absorption (AA) occurs when a ground state atom absorbs energy in the form of light of a specific wavelength and is elevated to an excited state. The amount of light energy absorbed at this wavelength will increase as the number of atoms of the selected element in the light path increases. The relationship between the amount of light absorbed and the concentration of analytes present in known standards can be used to determine unknown sample concentrations by measuring the amount of light they absorb.
